April 9, 2011—Candace Rae Watson Day


Today we come together to focus our attention on a very special Prayer Registry child, Candace Rae Watson.


Dear Prayer Giver,

Take a moment to sit down and bring all of your awareness into this sacred present moment. Allow your thoughts and cares of the day slip away from you now as you enter the present moment completely. Slowly take in a deep breath and slowly let the breath out; breathing in deeply and exhaling fully. And again, inhale slowly and exhale thoroughly.


As you read these words, take the time to really feel and think about what you are saying, for this is indeed a sacred moment. Dear Candace, we The Prayer Team, are with you now in thought and spirit. We send you energy and love from our souls to yours and we pray that you will all feel it and know how very loved you are.


Meditation/Visualization: —continue to sit comfortably and allow yourself to be here in the present moment, letting go of your cares and worries of the day.


Now, bring all of your attention to the tip of your nose and imagine that you are the gatekeeper at the gates of a big city and that it is your very important job to watch the coming and the going of your breath.  Simply focus all your concentration at the tip of your nose and observe your breath as it enters and leaves you


As you breathe-in, focus on the feeling of the breath as it enters your nostrils

As you breathe-out, focus on the feeling of the breath as it leaves your nostrils

Breathing-in feel the breath coming into you

Breathing-out feel the breath as it leaves you


Continue to focus on your breathing

If your mind wanders away going off into thought,(which is common in meditation) gently bring your focus back to the tip of your nose and resume your position as gatekeeper, watching the coming and going of your breath


As you breathe-in feel the cool air as it enters your nostrils

As you breathe-out feel the warm air as it leaves your nostrils

Breathing-in cool, breathing-out warm

Breathing-in cool, breathing-out warm

In cool, out warm…in cool, out warm


Now as you breathe-in envision Candace

standing in the light before you

As you breathe-out envision Candace looking vibrant and well



As you inhale envision drawing energy into you

As you exhale envision directing that energy to Candace

As you inhale continue to visualize energy entering into you

As you exhale see this energy flowing outward from you and surrounding Candace

Bathing her in light and loving energy

See her surrounded by energy

See her smiling

See her laughing

See that she is both happy and free


As you breathe-in feel that you are strengthened by this energy

As you breathe-out direct this feeling of strength to Candace’s family

As you breathe-in draw peace into yourself

As you exhale send that feeling of peace to Candace’s family


Dear Candace, we all see you smiling and glowing in the light. May you know that LOVE, the one universal sustaining force, is being sent to you right now and always will be. May you feel it and know that love is without end. You will always be loved and you will always be remembered.  Love to you dear one. Peace be with you Candace. Know that we love you, The Prayer Team.

    Dear Melinda…..Please know we are all with you on this angel birthday of your Candace. We all know how hard it is to even believe this is happening. I send my prayers and positive thoughts that you can see Candace in her 3 little girls and have some happiness and joy in their upbringing and life ahead. Keep their Mom alive with all the wonderful stories that only you know about Candace.
    Positive thoughts for you today
    And hugs too, Susan Donny’s Mom

    • Thank you so much for your kind words. This isn’t happening, yet I know it’s true. As irrational and twisted as it sounds, I can’t wait for the night to come when I’m asleep and she comes to take me Home with her!! I’ll be so happy!

    • From the deepest depths of my heart I thank Nina, Tim,Christy, and especially Tamara for the energy for sending your prayers! Teresa, I know the heavens WILL be filled w/LOVE for Candace. I miss her SO much! I keep hearing her voice when she called me. I want to hear/see my Baby! She had just turned 30. She was still a little girl! I just asked the Lord, or Higher Power, to be with you all. We’ve suffered the greatest loss any human being should ever have to endure.

    You are so welcome. We all stand together through this and we will, year after year…you can count on it!


  9. I can’t stay
    away from this. My life is totally up-side down. I go b/4 Candace. Why did the Devil do this? God wouldn’t. HE can’t win every battle though.I know she’ll have greater rewards on the “other side”. I can’t wait for Candace to take me Home w/her!! She passed 4/09/10. Today is 4/19/11. Lord don’t let me loose my mind over my only child.
